Willow & Co Remixed Clover Skirt

Kids Clothes

So a girl will do just about anything to have a chance at winning some fabric, right? I am in love with Willow & Co patterns, and right now they are having a huge back to school competition. One of  the categories is for best remix. I am the kind of person who likes to follow a pattern to the letter, so to remix a pattern is a big deal for me. 

I started small, remixing the clover shorts pattern, into the clover skirt. It was a simple alternation, but I think the pleats and the ruffle waist look super cute in the skirt version 😉

She's a cutie alright

And Ruby seems to like it too. I think I’ll be converting a few more patterns into skirts.

Thanks for stopping by. Make sure you check out the other entries

I was hoping to have a fawn lily tunic to go with this outfit, but it’s not quite finished But when it is I’ll be sharing some pics of that too 😉 Plus stay tuned as I’ll be posting shortly about the Persimmon dress I made for Piper, and let’s just say I’m in love.


Pattern Testing the Elm Poncho for Willow & Co Patterns

Kids Clothes, Pattern Testing

Ok, so this is super exciting… my first pattern test!

If you haven’t heard of Willow & Co Patterns than you seriously have to go check them out.  A whole bunch of amazingly creative people working together to create a fabulous collection of patterns.

So, I got to test the Elm Poncho which was designed by Celina at Petit a Petit and Family. It’s a super cute poncho, with lots of options. Including welt pockets, visor or chipmunk ears (cute). I was asked to make the visor option with patch pockets, and added some mini pom-pom trim for some extra cuteness.

We had about 3 drops of rain, but Piper was super keen to test it out.

I think she likes it!

It's a winner
